Archdeacon Michael Hopkins
We had a long interegnum after we farewelled Archdeacon Colin Tett on Pentecost Sunday, 4 June 2006.
Please join us in praying for Archdeacon Michael Hopkins, whom God has called to be our Parish Priest, and was Welcomed on 5 Nov 2009.
Christianity is giving - not wanting
Called to be servants - not masters
Listening trying to help - not telling
Studying God's word and reading various commentaries
to widen our understanding
of the depth and height of God's wisdom.
Our guide along this fascinating path is Michael Hopkins, Archdeacon Anglican Church Diocese of Bendigo, in Mildura, Victoria, Australia Religious Institutions also guiding the Anglican Church Diocese of Riverina, Deakin Court Inc, and Murray Mallee Community Legal Service
And currently serving his turn while Bishop Andrew is on long service leave from the Diocese for July and August.
This image, taken Sunday 2 Oct 2011 at All Saints, Meringur was the occasion for our Annual Service in this, the Anglican church furthest from the centre of our Diocese, Bendigo.
The Anglican Parish of Northern Mallee is also providing pastoral and ministry oversight in the neighbouring Parishs of Robinvale / Manangatang and Wentworth / Dareton. We now have a team of three clergy who gather each community around the Eucharist.

Do join in our Parish Prayer - Prosper with your blessing, O Lord, the work to which you have called us in the Northern Mallee, Robinvale and Wentworth parishes, and strengthen the hands of all who serve you. Make our worship more worthy, our witness more effective, our lives more holy, and inspire us all with fresh zeal in the proclamation of your kingdom. Amen.
Christianity was introduced into Gloucestershire, England, within 12 years of Christ's death.
To quote from Ken Beck's letter published on Page 24, Gloucestershire Family History Society Journal Number 97 - June 2003.
Aulus Plautius was the Roman General who conquered and held this district. His wife was a Christian put on trial in Rome. An officer of the court of Plautius was known as Pudens, married to Claudia the daughter of a local British chief and had a son named Linus.
The family were Christians and are thought to have gone to Rome, becoming the three friends refered to in St Paul's Second Epistle to Timothy chapter 4, verse 21,
(Timothy) "do your best to come before the winter. Eubulus sends greetings to you, as do Pudens, Linus and Claudia."
You may enjoy British Royalty, a 'soap-opera' explanation of Claudia, her Roman husband and her son who became the Bishop of Rome after Paul died. Evidence, and proof, of the doings of obscure people (the early Christians) is hard to find, only becomes significant long after they died.
